Top 25 Watch Trends in August

From Hybrid E-Ink Smartwatches to Rugged Urbanite Timepieces

— September 4, 2018 — Fashion
While some of the top August 2018 watch ideas redesign classic models and reissue century-old designs, others usher in a range of new features for the convenience of the modern consumer.

In terms of form, some of the most striking watches include ones with that take inspiration from camera lenses, have detachable components of open-face designs. Rather than requiring consumers to choose from investing in either a mechanical watch or a smartwatch style, some watch brands are introducing models that offer the best of both worlds with interchangeable parts.

As an alternative to the many smartwatch devices that boast vibrant full-color displays, some forward-thinking creators are now sharing wearables with E-Ink screens that offer an exceptionally long battery life that requires little charging between uses.
